What's New: Black Trade Union Leaders Speak Out on The Future of the Labor Movement

by Black Labor Collaborative | August 14, 2015

A new 35-page white paper, "A Future for Workers: A Contribution From Black Labor," was released by the Black Labor Collaborative, a group of influential African American leaders from major labour organizations who offer a progressive critique and agenda to frame discussions about the direction of the American labour movement. This is a seismic development, because it is the first time representatives of 2.1 million black trade unionists have published a comprehensive outlook on organized labour.



Bullet #1153: A New Union Movement and Anti-Racism

Michael Yates | August 14, 2015

In terms of the willingness of labour leaders -- AFL-CIO officials and those at the top of individual unions -- to engage in class-struggle unionism, the answer is no, the situation today is similar to that in 2009. These people often talk a good game, but their actions belie their words. Strikes are extremely rare, and concession bargaining is still common.



What's New: Shocking words of Israeli leaders read aloud in Irish parliament

| August 13, 2015

In this video, Irish lawmaker Richard Boyd Barrett reads out some of the more shocking, violent and racist statements recently made by Israeli ministers and military officials. Boyd Barrett was speaking in Dáil Éireann, the lower house of the parliament of the Republic of Ireland, yesterday during questions to Taoiseach (prime minister) Enda Kenny about his visit to Paris earlier this year.



What's New: How Boston Kicked Out the Olympics

by Queen Arsem-O'Malley | August 13, 2015

An eight-lane highway does not a good neighbor make. On a Saturday in January 1969, thousands gathered on Boston Common to emphasize that point with the cry of “People before highways!” They were referring to the Southwest Expressway, which was slated to cut through the Roxbury and Jamaica Plain neighborhoods in Boston and displace more than 7,000 people from their homes.



What's New: What is Wrong with the City of Toronto’s “George Street Revitalization Project”?

by OCAP | August 13, 2015

Seaton House on George Street is the City's largest men's shelter. In 2013, over 3,000 men used one of the 540 beds there. The GSRP proposes to turn Seaton House into a long-term care home, emergency shelter, assisted living residence and service hub. There are serious concerns about Seaton House and its conditions but the ‘revitalization’ is a bad idea because...



What's New: Greece: Was, and Is There, an Alternative?

by Richard Fidler | August 12, 2015

On January 25 Syriza, the Coalition of the Radical Left, emerged with a plurality of 36% of the popular vote in Greece’s national legislative election, winning 149 seats, two short of a majority, on a radical anti-austerity program. With the support of ANEL, a small right-wing but anti-austerity party, it formed a government.



What's New: If Jeremy Corbyn wins, prepare for a firestorm

by Owen Jones | August 12, 2015

"Get Corbyn" is nothing if not an inclusive campaign. The liberal left and conservatives alike have united, dripping condescension, smarm, contempt or outright bile on Jeremy Corbyn and those who support him. The Corbyn campaign may have unleashed the biggest pan-British progressive grassroots political movement for many years, but it has few friends either in the media establishment or Westminster.

Forum: Chris Hedges: The Great Unraveling

Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Chris Hedges joins us for an evening in Toronto to speak about "The Great Unraveling."

Revolutions come in waves and cycles. We are again riding the crest of a revolutionary epic, much like 1848 or 1917, from the Arab Spring to movements against austerity in Greece to the Occupy Movement. In his newest book, Wages of Rebellion, Chris Hedges investigates what social and psychological factors cause revolution, rebellion, and resistance. Drawing on an ambitious overview of prominent philosophers, historians and literary figures, he shows not only the harbingers of a coming crisis but also the nascent seeds of rebellion. Hedges’ message is clear: popular uprisings in the United States and around the world are inevitable in the face of mounting environmental destruction and grotesque wealth polarization.

The event is organized by Canadian Dimension magazine with support from Centre for Social Justice | www.eventbrite.ca | Facebook event
